Healthy fast food brand LEON are back, to bring you hundreds of gluten- and dairy-free recipes that are deliciously fuss-free.

'LEON was the first restaurant on the high street to pay attention to a new way of eating - championing gluten-, dairy- and sugar-free food. We've always done it. It's always done us and our customers good. Now it's time to stop it being a secret.' - John Vincent, LEON co-founder

Each recipe in this beautiful cookbook is completely gluten-, dairy- and refined sugar-free, with many following a 'paleon' formula (LEON's version of Paleo). From recipes for gluten-free Spaghetti Vongole to chocolate beetroot cake, breakfast dahl to chicken and olive tagine, this book contains recipes for every meal of the day and every occasion, and proves that a free-from menu can be utterly delicious.

Whiskey America

Dominic Roskrow
Authors:
Dominic Roskrow

What can we expect from the best whiskey producers in America today? Whiskey America showcases some of the most exciting new styles of whiskey and why they are so special. With fascinating interviews with some of the leading characters in the recent distilling revolution, this absorbing book relates the stories of how successful lawyers, doctors and city slickers made the life-changing decision to turn their backs on conventional careers to pursue the 'good life' of making spirits in the most far-flung outreaches of America. And thank goodness they did, because this new generation of distillers not only customized conventional whiskey styles but also invented new ones never seen before. Whiskey America investigates how best to enjoy the new whiskies - in cocktails, with food, mixed or straight - and looks forward to where these exciting American spirits are going next.
